Description

This PC is an update to my last completed build, it was a huge upgrade with a crazy sale. During Newegg's Fantastech sales I picked up a Ryzen 7 2700 and the Motherboard for $250 comboed. The ram was $65 compared to regular >$80. The RX 580 is an eBay card, was the cheapest 8GB model I could find. The monitors have both been fantastic, even though the 4k is QC reject Samsung panel, it has no dead pixels and runs great. I play most games at 2k or 4k high or ultra, occasionally an intensive title needs a 1080p drop but it still looks great. I also do some 3D modeling in Autodesk Inventor 2020 along with video editing in Premiere Pro 2019. The 2700 handles like a champ.

Part Reviews

CPU

For the price its absolutely killer, couldn't afford 3rd gen but this was plenty for the price tag.

Motherboard

An RGB ATX X470 board for $100. No complaints

Memory

Looks great, fast, easy to OC.

Storage

Into windows in <5 seconds

Video Card

RGB looks good, stays cool, fan profiles are awesome. Sags a little

Case

Absolutely amazing. The only drawback is just 2 hard drive bays.

Monitor

Been using for 3 years, good color, menu is a little difficult to use

Monitor

Gets a lot of flak for being QC rejects from Samsung, but the panels are still beautiful and if you're lucky like me, you get one without any dead pixels

Keyboard

I have had issues with breaking switches, replacement is easy enough. Looks and feels great

Mouse

Doesn't have the hero sensor, but other than that is amazing. I use mine at full weight and love it!

I mean for using a 4k monitor and that old of a gpu, I play most games at 2k high/ultra which blew me away. And the CPU keeps up super well in non gpu loads. I love this system compared to my previous one. The motherboard works great too.

I got mine on ebay for $125, and they are probably still similar now. Its not a bad card for the price, if you have a little extra money id recommend something more modern.
